The OLIVE Film Collection

The Online Library for Interactive Video and Engagement is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.

We share these films as educational resources. As works of art, they can elicit strong responses. Please take care of yourself while watching these films! We’ve created these guides as resources for you when watching the OLIVE films alone, with friends, with your children and/or with your students.
